Reelate stories are five minute mini-docs that feature a person. Some of the stories are about people from Stark County. Some of the people work or live in Stark County now.
At a time when fewer and few of us even know our neighbor's last names, the web often draws us farther from the people near us. Reelate aims to draw us back together, finding more about the dreams, the work, the play, the memories and the adventures of people from nearby.
These stories aren't meant to provide the same kind of catharsis or shock or astonishment that Hollywood stories do. They're not meant to provide the timely, issue-oriented record that newspapers do. Hopefully they'll work on you gradually, in small ways. Rooting you in a sense of where you live, who you live with and why and how your neighbors matter.
